Committed for an efficient, globally competitive and vibrant sugarcane agriculture

Training Programmes

The performance and growth of sugarcane and sugar sector much depends upon the skills and knowledge of human resources involve in it. Sugarcane production system’s effectiveness depends largely on the people and clientele groups involved in production system. Human resources are dynamic and complex and so is their development. Human Resource Development under the present context refers to the improvements in the capacities and capabilities of the personnel in relation to the needs of the sugar industry and sugarcane production system. HRD creates a climate in which the flower of human knowledge, skills, capabilities and creativity can bloom. HRD is generally brought about through a bunch of sub-systems all of which are meant to focus on development of the individuals and groups constituting the social system of the organization or farming systems, one of these sub-systems is training.
